I finally am cutting into this FQ bundle of brushed home spuns. Using Primitive Muslin, color Pie Crust as the background, each FQ will produce two 12" liberated stars. 25 for each quilt. Yes, I'm making two quilts at the same time with the same fabric. Both will be gifted, one to my cancer surgeon when I graduate his 5 year plan (2014) and one for the Hospital Foundation to raffle off for funds for a digital mammography machine.
I've been making the sashing pieces as leaders/enders, so I finally had enough for another stack of 10. Making headway on this one, Sisters Choice, and I'm still loving it when I took out the stack of 9 patches this weekend.
Couldn't resist these charmers, I finished up the 1/2 square triangles I made last week. Using the sheets of paper, you get enough for seven blocks. I'm sure there will be more sewn on a future sew day. Just what I need, another WIP!
You may have seen a few of these around blogland. JT2 (Just Takes 2) is going to be a great skill builder for some and for others, a great refresher on techniques that we maybe don't use that much . My first set is at the LQS where we are going to meet once a month. If there is enough interest, a second group may be formed so check with Carol if you are interested.
And finally, a finished top. After auditioning all the possible colors for a border, I ended up with blue. Binding is made (same fabric) and the quilt is hanging in the "to be quilted" closet.
I LOVE this quilt, now that it's together.
All the customer quilts I've done lately have been large and the one on my machine is no exception. (pics in next post) I bounced from the studio to my sewing room, back and forth, all day and worked on all the above projects. Yes, I took time out to walk my dog, the weather finally broke and the worst we had was wind on our walk, I'll take that over the rain any day.
Hope you all had a great weekend and got in some sew time.
